Our main Motto:

Evaluation Methods:-  The participants are evaluated in each course using two methods:       

  1. Unit- Test: The participants are required to appear in a Written Test at the end of Module- E and H. The passing score is 60%. Questions may be in the form of short answer, multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank or matching the columns etc..
  2. Practical Evaluations:Modules with performance components will have a practical evaluation afterwards. Practical evaluations are done, basing on the performance of tasks and attention to safety. If the participant receives Less than 60% score on a practical Evaluation, he will be allowed to take one make-up for practical evaluation.


60% Skill                                                                   90-100 = A grade

25% Team work                                                       80-89   = B grade

10% Written                                                              70-79   = C grade

05% Discipline and Leadership                            60-69   = D grade

                                                                                    Below 60= F grade


After successfully completing all course requirements, the participants will receive a Certificate of Completion. The Certificate will state that the participant has successfully achieved all lesson objectives and completed all tests, practices and evaluation criteria with the above grading.
